75 years after breaking baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers, Jackie Robinson's legacy continues to affect the game.
In spite of the vitriol and abuse he received from teammates and fans, Robinson was an instant success on the field.
On the anniversary of his April 15, 1947 debut, the league introduced Jackie Robinson Day in 2004.
Every April 15, players, managers, and umpires honor Robinson in their own unique way.
This year celebrates the 75th anniversary of Robinson's inaugural Opening Day. An important day in baseball will see tributes from across the league.
